Bear In A Den (Self-Isolation)

I don’t join things, I don’t want to be part of any group
what makes you think I’d be interested?
I like to be invited, but I don’t want to anyway
if I do go somewhere reluctantly, I get there late
sorry-not-sorry I got there when I wanted to
we’re not all in this together bruh
we’re in it because of you and your ilk
don’t mind the new normal as they put it
don’t mind self-isolation bear in a den lone wolf
was enjoying it long before it became the flavor of the month
fine with social distancing...keep it going
the less contact the better I say
so keep away keep to yourself keep on walking
somebody on the next barstool over
just invites some insipid conversation and I wanna be left alone
what’s up? same old same old...blah blah blah
so not to be rude but just keep your distance and nobody gets hurt
no really I don’t give a damn if I am rude
if I need your help I’ll ask for it---no I won’t
I don’t do high fives--I don’t want to shake your hand
go about your business without me
wish I had a lighthouse overlooking the sea to work in
one of those forest fire cabins off a dirt road
or some shed on an asteroid nine million miles away
